It’s May the 4th! Happy Star Wars Day, boba lovers. May the Force be with you! On this day, May the 4th, Star Wars fans everywhere celebrate their love for this beloved franchise. It’s an opportunity to dress up as your favorite character, re-watch your favorite movie, or have a Star Wars-themed party with your friends and family. We believe the perfect way to celebrate is with a galactic snack infused with frog eggs – better known as boba in this galaxy.
May the 4th Inspired Boba Snacks That Are Out Of This Galaxy
The Blue Milk of Tatooine is named for the beverage that Luke Skywalker, his uncle Owen and aunt Berlu drink in their hut in the very first installment of the Star Wars franchise. The most famous drink in the Star Wars universe, it can be easily found on The Blackspire Outpost on Batuu. This recipe can be made as a spirit or mocktail, and is dairy free.
Add the gin, blue curaçao, cream of coconut, lime juice, pineapple juice, orgeat and vanilla syrup into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
Add prepared boba into a glass, and strain the chilled milk on top.
The Boba Fett
Strong but sweet like the man himself, this drink is themed after Gardulla, the beverage shared between Jabba Desilijic Tiure and Boba Fett in his palace on Tatooine. The recipe can be shared or paced throughout your next viewing marathon.
1 oz Vodka – (preferably chilled)
2.5 oz strawberry & lime syrup
1 cup of Strawberries and 2 limes
.5 oz fresh lime juice
2 ounces Orange Juice (freshly squeezed if possible)
Mix up a strawberry and lime syrup. Start with 1 cup of diced strawberries, .25 cup white sugar, and half a lime. Add the strawberries and sugar to a small saucepan, squeeze the juice from the lime into the saucepan and drop the skins in too. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, stirring continuously until a syrup forms. Discard the lime skins and set them aside to cool before using.
Combine all liquids but soda in a shaker with ice.
Add the tapioca pearls and finished syrup in the bottom of your serving glass
Add fresh OJ & fresh lime juice to taste
Charge with sparkling water.
Colo Claw Fish Eggs (a Guru favorite)
While generally compared to beluga caviar, Colo Claw Fish Eggs are a snack of the galaxy’s elite. Our much more accessible boba is a fun way to class up your Star Wars charcuterie board. Colo claw fish were native to the planets Naboo and Odona. In 32 BBY, Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Jar Jar Binks used a Gungan bongo submarine to travel through Naboo’s core to get to Theed. Their bongo was attacked by a Colo claw fish, which was then attacked and devoured by a sando aqua monster. Eventually, the eggs were offered to Han Solo by Dryden Vos in the self-titled film Solo.
Fill up your favorite bowl with Strained Tapioca Pearls
Sprinkle with powdered sugar
Provide toothpicks for serving
The Balance of the Force
The Balance of the Force drink is a harmonious blend of chocolate and vanilla. This shake represents the struggle between the Dark and Light sides of the Force, and the importance of finding balance in all things. The drink is created by blending a chocolate shake with its vanilla counterpart which allows a perfect balance to the flavors. The result is a smooth and refreshing drink that embodies the concept of balance. Just like the Force, the Balance of the Force drink is a reminder of the importance of finding the perfect balance.
In a blender, combine the vanilla ice cream, 1/2 cup of milk, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.
Place Boba in a large glass or tumbler
Pour the vanilla milkshake into a your glass and set it aside.
Rinse out the blender and then combine the chocolate ice cream, 1/2 cup of milk, and 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup. Blend until smooth.
Pour the chocolate milkshake on top of the vanilla milkshake in the glass, creating a swirl effect.
Top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and a cherry, if desired.
Serve and enjoy!
You can also adjust the amount of milk to achieve your desired consistency. If you prefer a thicker milkshake, use less milk, and for a thinner milkshake, use more milk. As always, consider using oat milk for a sweeter, less dairy intensive alternative.
